This thoughtfully-designed and competently-crafted action RPG -- penned by legendary game designer Peter Molyneux -- is rich with story, memorable locations, and characters. Its combat – be it through swords, guns, or magic – is simple but gratifying. What's more, every action has a positive or negative reaction, especially once the player becomes ruler of Albion. (And you thought it would be easy being a monarch.) The game's co-op mode wasn't ready at the time of writing this, but two players can band together online to adventure through the campaign as a team.
This Xbox 360 exclusive lets gamers master might and magic, take on dozens of quests for (and with) colorful characters, and explore a huge world that comes alive on your television. Quite simply, if you liked Fable and Fable II, you'll love Fable III.
Online interaction: We were not able to test the online interaction, as co-op play wasn't yet activated at the time of this writing, but two players will be able to log online together and tackle the game side-by-side. They can also talk via a Xbox 360 headset. This will open the door to players playing with strangers and, consequently, possible exposure to offensive language and inappropriate topics of discussion.
